CONROE, Texas (AP) — A Houston-area man has been sentenced to 15 years in prison after his convictions resulting from a 2016 police chase that ended in a crash that killed an officer and an 11-year-old boy.

The Courier of Montgomery County reports 30-year-old Garrett William Nee of Kingwood was sentenced Tuesday for evading arrest causing serious bodily injury and other counts.

Patton Village police Sgt. Stacey Baumgartner found Nee at a gas station in June 2016 while responding to a report of a person exposing himself.

Nee fled in his vehicle and Baumgartner pursued. The 39-year-old sergeant was entering an intersection when his vehicle collided with one that Adan Hilario Jr. and his family were in.

Adan died at the scene and Baumgartner at a hospital.
